Publisher's Summary

When two seemingly unconnected mysterious deaths occur on his watch, police chief Jesse Stone must pull out all the stops to unravel the truth and stop a killer from striking again.

The small town of Paradise is devastated when a star high-school baseball player is found dead at the bottom of a bluff just a day after winning the team’s biggest game. For Jesse, the loss is doubly difficult—the teen was the nephew of his colleague, Suitcase Simpson, and Jesse had been coaching the young shortstop. As he searches for answers about how the boy died and why, he is stonewalled at every turn, and it seems that someone is determined to keep him from digging further.

Jesse suddenly must divide his attention between two cases after the shocking murder of former Paradise police chief, Charlie Farrell. Before his death, Farrell had been looking into a series of scam calls that preyed upon the elderly. But how do these “ghost calls” connect to his murder? When threats—and gunshots—appear on Jesse’s own doorstep, the race to find answers is on. Both old and new enemies come into play, and in the end, Jesse and his team must discover the common factor between the two deaths in order to prevent a third.

Small town with big problems

The Sheriff of Paradise once more confronts crime that extends to beyond its rural borders. You care about some of the victims. I especially like the minor themes of baseball and the personalities of the other cops. A little less alcohol references would be fine, but perhaps that is accurate for such sufferers. Superb writing and engrossing mysteries.

Great Listen

Mike Lupica is continuing the Jesse stone series with the foresight to develop Jesse into a recovering, kind, force to be reconded with, Chief of Police. This story brought up present-day issues; that Jesse had to deal with, in addition to small-town living with grace and style. I thought the ending was great for the amount of tragedy the town went through. I even had some OMGs along the way. Thanks for an excellent read.

If you can't stand, said, said, avoid this book.

We have listen to the Jesse Stone series and listen to the narrator in previous books . But nothing will spoil a book for us more than dialogue like this Jesse said, Molly said, Suitcase said, Jesse said.... Sad. sad....SAD...we SAID

Extreme use of Profanity with GD was extreme.

I have followed Jesse Stone novels from beginning to this one the end and never have I heard the use of GD so much in one novel. Profanity is a fact of life and I even use occasionally but to hear GD so much through this novel was disturbing. The plot was good the storyline was good but could have cut back on the use of gods name in vain.

Another winner for Lupica

Faithful to the Parker spirit and a good time with familiar characters.
Narration is first rate by James Naughton (again!)

Solid story…

Great story. Even better narration.

As someone that has read everything Robert B. Parker has written, I am amazed at how true to form Mike Lupica’s stories are. James Naughton is now the voice of Chief Stone. Nothing else will work for me now. Great job.

Good

Good story lines. Like that Robert Parker’s stories continue. To many of my favorite authors die or quit, and I’m left wondering what happened to their characters.

Jesse Stone

Not the best but a good story. A Jesse stone fan. I'll be waiting for the next story.
